Since having kids, I started being much more aware about the foods I was purchasing, and everything in our home. Over the years I have become a label-reader and learned a lot about the products we use. One of the things we try to make a good effort with is purchasing organic products. Organic Valley is an organic farmer-owned food cooperative, and as a company, their goals are the kinds of things I look for when we choose products – like being better for you, the animals, and the earth.
Choosing organic dairy products is important to us, and even better are grassfed dairy products. For cows with a grain-free, grass fed diet, milk they create is richer in nutrients (like CLA and omega-3) – perfect for our vegetarian family. I have two daughters, and the last thing I want to do is give them dairy products from animals that are given synthetic hormones and antibiotics.
I think it is important to look for products that are healthier and have more nutrition, especially when it comes to kids. I like to be more aware when I shop now, and I appreciate the grassfed products from Organic Valley. Plus not only do they put thought into their farms, but the farmers and the environment.
Our average herd size is just 72 cows. Most factory farms have herds with thousands of cows. When herds are small, each cow gets more attention and more TLC.
By forgoing chemicals in our fields, we keep everyone healthier, reduce harmful runoff and build living soil that actually takes more carbon out of the atmosphere.
Technically, cage free eggs could still come from chickens living in cramped industrial warehouses. (See? No cage!) But at Organic Valley, our chickens are free range, and organic, which means organic feed only, no antibiotics, and freedom to roam outside in good weather. We even go beyond organic standards to provide extra outdoor space for foraging and exercise, more room for perching indoors, and guaranteed shade outside for the hot summer months.
We have been on a Mexican food kick lately, so the kids went right for the Organic Valley Mexican Blend cheese that I bought. We make a lot of Taco Salad, which is a great way to get in some salad.
The kids also love making their own quesadillas, which is a hearty part of their meal that is great before sports practices or meets.
Milk is a part of our daily routine, whether we start off the day with some cereal or some overnight oats. For dinner, we often use milk for making mac and cheese or other pasta dishes (like alfredo), or we do some baking.
I highly recommend learning more about Organic Valley, because there are so many great things about their products, and they have quite a few items in their product line, from cheese to yogurt, milk, butter, eggs, and more. We care about the environment, how farm animals are treated, and the health of our family, and Organic Valley shares those same values.

I always buy their products especially the eggs. Just knowing that everything is organic and healthy for your body is just great.
We don’t have this brand of dairy products here yet. I would love to eat their cheddar and try their ghee!
I love these kinds of products. This brand is amazing! I would eat any of these. The cheese sure does look delicious!
I also read labels diligently and buy grass-fed products when I can. I haven’t tried Organic Valley, but would love to.

I love discovering new high quality products. I was glad to find more about Organic Valley
Wow, how cool! Making hearty meals with the family is a smart idea. We use their butter. Thanks for sharing!
I have recently discovered ghee for my personal use and I love it. This brand seems great.
Isn’t it funny how having kids changes our priorities, and makes us think about these things? We raise our own grass fed beef cows, but I’m thrilled to find a good dairy brand that is grass fed!
It can be confusing knowing which products are safest for my family. Finding quality brands I know I can trust gives such peace of mind! ❤️ organic options!
I haven’t tried organic valley products I need to check it out. Looks like great products. Great giveaway too.
Thanks for sharing. I didn’t realize they had Ghee which I use all the time. I will definitely be looking for it locally.

I truly do love this brand myself!
I would like to try the Organic Valley Grass Milk. They have a lot of products and I would like to try the Raw Sharp Cheddar cheese also.
This is an awesome giveaway. I like to be conscientious about buying organic as well!
Lucky for you, you don’t have to worry about the quality of food like in my country. We also have to beware of choosing healthy food and nutrition so sometimes, it’s hard to balance between them.
Haven’t tried their products but it does look like they are great to try. I will look for this label at the grocery store this weekend.
We’re all about buying grass-fed milk, cheese, meat, etc! It’s very important for us to buy from farmers that treat their animals humanely.
I am not sure if we would have Organic Valley products here available, but they look delicious, I love organic options , thank you 🙂
